ABB-AccessControl is a professional solution for remote access management. 
It can be planned as standalone solution or integrated with a Building Managment System thanks to smart IP connectivity.

How is access managed?

For system settings and the management of individual access authorizations, statuses, etc., an online administration system is available. Thanks to the web interface, you can access your ABB-AccessControl system quickly and easily and keep it under control at all times. Particularly practical: you will be informed at an early stage if a cylinder battery is about to run out, so that it can be replaced in good time.

How does ABB-AccessControl work?

Several floors can be equipped with cylinder locks in an office building, and include repeaters in the system that distribute the signal throughout the building. Different access rights for different people can be assigned through individual tag keys. Based on IP technology, limitations on the number and range of end devices with which the system is controlled are minimized. Decentralized control and installation options effectively protect the system from unauthorized access.

Electric cylinders are suitable for door thicknesses up to 140 mm. A status LED light provides visual feedback and, thanks to the IP66 protection rating, you are always safe. The cylinders are powered by a battery that allows up to 130,000 openings before needing to be replaced. Manual opening of the cylinder is possible at any time from the inside.

The transponder key is the counterpart to electric cylinders and serves as a door opener. It is available in white, grey and black.
